Venezia without Venice

Hi all!

Our day in Rome started dark and early at 4 am before the sun even rose. Our morning workout involved dragging our luggages to Rome Termini in the dark for 1.7 km in 45 mins. That was a serious achievement unlocked for us during the entire leg of our trip, considering has physically tired we were by them. We arrived in Milano, where we stored our luggages for 12€/24 hours at the station, before rushing to catch our connecting train to Venezia. After we’ve got our water bus pass, we headed straight to Burano, a small island scattered with brightly coloured houses. It made for such a bright and cheerful atmosphere.

From Burano, we dropped by Murano instead of Venice because my friend was keen on seeing a glass-making display. However, we didn’t know where to see those, plus, it was quite late then (~4 plus), so most places could have closed for the day. By then, my desperate need for feed and a washroom was making quite a show in my mode, so we settled down for lunch/dinner. Pesto pasta (another item on my Italy food checklist) was pretty good though slightly salty.

In the end, we didn’t visit Venice, the clouds were rolling, rain was pouring and we were rushing to catch our train back to Milano. Venice still remains on my bucket list to see before it drowns. But that just means I’ve to return back next time. Till the next post, bye!
